The Body Guard Crab *NEW*
Designed by Dave McKenna, The Body Guard Crab is one of the most exciting crabs we've ever presented to permit or big bonefish.
It's another pattern made perfect by the new synthetic Guard Hair Chenille from Semperfli. This fly lights up with natural coloration from a blend micro UV tinsel and translucent micro fiber. It mimics the natural moss and algae that cover natural crabs on the flats.
The Body Guard Crab imitates a fleeing crab that's evading a permit. One claw is buried, digging for dear life, the fighting claw is out and swinging for faces. The hot orange brass eyes balance the fly just right to posture the claw up and towards the permits mouth. Micro chenille legs keep it animated and a belly of natural Guanaja sand leaves no doubt in the permits mind that he's in for an easy meal.
Our Tan Body Guard Crab is dyed with dark Honduran Coffee for the most natural sand color. These are tied in small batches and sell quickly when available.
Tied on Premium Umpqua XS 410 Flats Hook for Spring 2021.
